COVID-19 Vaccine First Doses
Primary Health is now vaccinating all individuals age 12+. Patients may walk-in or schedule online for a carside appointment. For patients age 12 - 17, Pfizer (Comirnaty) is the only vaccine available.
COVID-19 Vaccine Boosters
If you received your initial COVID vaccine from Primary Health, we will contact you when you are eligible to receive a booster dose. COVID vaccine boosters are currently available for a very small number of people who qualify. Please review the requirements before coming in to a clinic.
Booster doses are available for qualifying patients who received the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine. There is no booster available for the Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) vaccine at this time.

COVID-19 and Illness Testing
Patients with illness symptoms can be seen at any Primary Health clinic, no appointment required. Patients will be strongly encouraged to get tested for COVID, even if they are fully vaccinated. Most PCR test results are back in 48 hours or less.
Asymptomatic patients (no symptoms) may also seek COVID testing at any location.
We require everyone who enters a Primary Health clinic to wear a face mask, regardless of vaccination status or the reason for their visit.
Children age 17 and younger may be seen in Pediatric Urgent Care, and are also welcome at all other Primary Health locations.
Symptoms or Exposure: When to Get Tested
People with COVID-19 symptoms should be tested regardless of their vaccination status. Testing is critical when it comes to understanding how the virus is spreading, so patients can isolate as necessary and health care providers can plan for community needs. Read more here.
- People who have known exposure to someone with suspected/confirmed COVID-19:
- Fully vaccinated people do not have to quarantine, but they are advised to get tested 3-5 days after exposure (and continue precautions until they get a negative test)
- Unvaccinated people should quarantine and be tested immediately. If negative, they can be tested again in 5-7 days to shorten their quarantine. See guidelines here.
- Anyone who tests negative after being exposed to COVID-19 but then develops any COVID symptoms should be tested again immediately.
COVID-19 Rapid Tests for Travel and Events
Due to a shortage of rapid tests, we are not currently offering testing for travel or events.
